    Hi, will the free Disney Dining Plan be available next year? If we were to book our accommodation and tickets now and the free dining plan was released after would we be able to add this onto our booking? Will Port Orleans french quarter be back open?

    Howdy Lucy!

    Welcome to planDisney!  I am so excited that you stopped by to share your questions with us!  I can see that you are planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort to make unforgettable memories!  I am honored to help you with your planning questions!  Let’s get started!

    Since you are looking to stay at one of the Disney Resorts Collection hotels with theme tickets included, I recommend booking a Walt Disney World Vacation Package!  By booking a Walt Disney World Vacation Package, you will have the flexibility to modify your vacation if a “Special Offer” pops up that is “Practically Perfect in every way” for your next visit!  If you book a room-only reservation and tickets separately, you will be limited to the special offers that will pair with your tickets.  If the Disney Dining Plans resume for guests to add this option to their vacations and offered in a package, you can easily have a Cast Member modify your package to include the Disney Dining Plan offer.  

    My family and I love the Disney Dining Plans!  We are looking forward to the day that this amazing feature returns to the Walt Disney World Resort.  We do not know when or if this will be offered to guests visiting the Walt Disney World Resort.  To stay informed about when and if the Disney Dining Plans resume, check out the Disney Parks Blog.  The Disney Parks Blog is my go-to site to learn about everything to re-open, new attractions, new dining experiences, and when and if the Disney Dining Plans will return.

    Lucy, it looks like we both also love Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter!  I can smell all those yummy beignets now!  I look forward to the day we can enjoy this beautiful resort hotel once again!  At this time, we do not have dates as to when this resort hotel will be welcoming guests back.  As you continue to check the Disney Parks Blog, they will update guests when this stunning resort hotel will be open and make yummy beignets again!

    While you are planning, if you have any more questions, please come back to planDisney!  We look forward to helping you with all your planning questions, Lucy!

    See Ya Real Soon,
